About Kin + Carta Create 

At Kin + Carta Create we believe growth is built, not theorised. We’re makers, builders and creators by nature, and we come to work every day to build experiences your customers will love and technologies your business will thrive on.

Our approach is simple: Accelerate idea-to-value by striking the ideal balance of human-centred design, Agile engineering and the realities of affecting change at scale. Including new product development, service design and cloud modernisation, we take a hands-on approach to transforming our clients’ business. We’re headquartered in London and have delivery offices in Chicago, New York, Edinburgh, Amsterdam and Buenos Aires.

Location can flexible within the UK, ideally commutable to London, Edinburgh. Manchester or Liverpool.

The Senior Android Engineer role in a nutshell:

As a Senior Engineer, you'll be at the heart of any project you work on. You’ll have a specialism in Android but use a much broader technical experience to help steer your project team. You may bring a unique depth of knowledge in a specific topic, or you may have a breadth of expertise across many aspects of software development.

You’ll work with some of the world’s largest organisations, such as Tesco, RBS, Shell and Ford, to help define how they use mobile to drive their businesses. You’ll share your passion and experience with those around you, allowing and encouraging your less experienced teammates to step up.

At a senior level, your remit reaches beyond your project. Teammates in our internal Android community will naturally look to you for on-the-job coaching and broader career advice. Your success will be largely based on the success of those you influence.

At K+C Create, you will become a great leader in your field. You’ll be encouraged to work with others to shape our mobile proposition for new clients and grow our in-house team of mobile experts.

As Senior Android Engineer at Kin + Carta:

  • You’ll join our growing team of 17+ Android engineers who all share your passion for building great apps.
  • You’ll benefit from knowledge sharing sessions across the business, such as the Android team’s weekly meeting.
  • You’ll build market-leading products, typically leading a team of 2-3 other Android engineers.
  • You’ll help shape your product’s roadmap by taking part in all aspects of project planning and delivery.
  • You’ll contribute to our continued growth by helping identify and interview great new teammates.

The type of person we would love to meet:

  • You are a passionate, self-motivated engineer who builds Android apps with Kotlin.
  • You will bring valuable experience on topics such as UI, concurrency, persistence and architectural approaches (MVP, MVVM etc.)
  • You are excited about the opportunity to work on a variety of projects.
  • You seek opportunities to share your knowledge and experience with others.
  • You are committed to writing high quality, testable code.
  • You enjoy collaborating as an Agile team.
  • You are comfortable reviewing other people’s work and suggesting improvements.
  • You are eager to contribute to our Engineering culture and take advantage of what’s on offer.
